720 Q: 51 V: 35 - Owned by Words

Post Wed Jul 18, 2007 10:43 am
720... not crying, but definitely gonna take it again.
i actually thought i aced the math, but 51 is pretty far from 60.
i'm VERY weak when it comes to reading/writing/words and things of that nature... UGH

but scoring over 700 was definitely a good feeling.
was a silent reader of this forum, but i guess it's time to post.

How I Prepared:
- 4 weeks prior to exam, bought the Orange Book
- Did the Orange Book over a course of 2 weeks
- Did the GMATPrep practice tests twice each (600, 760, 700, 760)
- Took the Test

- As far as math is concerned, all you need to know is basic concepts and understand problems, not memorize things. A deep level of understanding and logic is all that matters... books didn't do much

*** HOW DO I IMPROVE MY VERBAL? Sad
any tips would be really appreciated!!!
GOING TO RETAKE IN 1 MONTH... NEED TO INCREASE VERBAL SKILL (i'm a native English speaker too which makes it even more sad)
if anybody could give me serious pointers of getting 35 to at least 40 or so... i'd love you

yup, it seems like a unanimous decision from everyone else i've asked.
if my Q and V were reversed, i'd be in trouble though because of the competitiveness of Q
Just got my official scores today
Got a 5.0 on AWA
